money is the root of all evil

Money is the root of all evil is a biblical verse from Timothy 6:10 which states For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. What the verse means, shortened to money is the root of all evil, is that when people love money and what it can bring to them, they often do things they shouldnt and it can then control their actions.
